Roaming about is called going “hither and yon.”
What’s it called when you have plans to go but you haven’t decided where to go?
Whither and Yon!
That’s pretty much where we stand at the moment. We have no destination for this winter!
We know we’ll remain in Milwaukee until the end of October. Will we have to extend beyond that date? We don’t yet know. That will be partially up to us and partially up to the doctor.
With our volunteer plan we had put so many eggs in one basket that we hadn’t considered an alternative. Based on the coming el níno forecast, the South looks uniformly compromised. Which leaves us with wide open choices. We might spend the winter fleeing the rain! Or chattering our teeth. Or we might spend the winter just loving life. After all, every day when you wake up above the grass is a pretty good day!
Aren’t Options Wonderful!!!!!
We might just choose to wander about aimlessly this year! We really haven’t done that yet. We’ve been retired for 4 years now and we’ve always had a sort of a destination. I like destinations. And during the summer — given the pressure on campgrounds — you often need to have plans if you’re going to camp at all — but it might be nice just to take each day at a time.
We have no interest in returning to South Texas this year. Another colder than average and much wetter than average isn’t appealing. But avoiding that may not be easy.
We had considered trying campgrounds further North in Texas (where the temps are normally colder than last year) but areas we had considered were so hard hit by 2015 flooding that some are not even going to be open this year — repairing the flood damage will keep them closed to the public for at least this winter if not longer.
Last Spring we considered a run along the Gulf Coast towards Florida and that too is a possibility this Winter.
Or a shot at the South Carolina/Georgia coast. That is a hand we might end up playing.
The reality is: we needn’t make up our mind until we get there. After all this is supposed to be our unscripted life. Right?
Thanks for stopping by. I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
